The Hobie kayak cart plugs right into the scupper holes of the current Hobie Outback, Sport, Mirage Tandem, Lanai, Maui, Adventure, Outfitter, Revolution, Odyssey, and Pro Angler.
It is so handy, I have not had any problems, It makes the getting there alot easier
A must have for a heavy kayak. I use mine for a PA14. The tacked welds are not great and it eventually broke. But, I brought it to a local welder who used an aluminum wire gun to finish out the weld for $20. More solid than before. Keep that in mind if yours ever breaks. For all that Hobie puts in to their kayaks they should put more thought into a solid cart with proper welds.
These carts are a great design. They are easy way to just slip into scupper holes. However they have serious defect. The spot welds easily break. I have a fleet of Hobie kayaks that I rent. I depend on these carts for my customers. They fall apart and are in constant need of repair. New I had to have them re-welded as all the welds break. The caps and fittings all fell out causing damage to the kayak. Beware! If you use these carts they will not last long.
These wheels work fine. On sand or soft soil it gets much more difficult to pull, but it is still doable. I've had them for about 3 weeks and the locking pin came out of its plastic housing. I shoved it back in and I haven't had any more problems.
